Class of 2011
As director of Admissions here at Linton Hall School, one of the questions I get asked most frequently is where do your 8th graders go to High School? The other piece to this question is often times, how does their Linton Hall School education prepare them for the journey of higher education. Perhaps the most accurate measurement of preparation is the percentage of students who go on to college.
This June, our LHS class of 2011 graduated from high school in the class of 2015! After some research (my son happens to be in this class of LHS graduates), I was able to find out the post high school graduation plans of the class. It is no surprise to me that the LHS class of 2011 has a one hundred percent matriculation rate!
Here is the list of colleges our LHS Alumni will be attending in the fall of 2015:
- Arizona State University (1)
- Christopher Newport University (1)
- Elon University (1)
- George Mason University (1)
- James Madison University (3)
- Northern Virginia Community College (1)
- Pratt Institute (1)
- Virginia Tech (2)
- Catholic University (1)
- Eastern Carolina University (1)
- Furman University (1)
- Hofstra University (1)
- Marquette University (1)
- Penn State (1)
- Virginia Commonwealth University (1)
As you can see, the list is impressive and varied! As we all know, determining a course of study at the beginning of freshman year is no easy task and, quite frankly, it often changes as students develop and hone in on their gifts and talents. But, when asked what they wanted to study, I learned that we had aspiring engineers, photographers, writers, nurses, journalists and wildlife conservationists (thank you, OCEW)! All or our alumni attribute their success in high school to a solid foundation that was afforded them during their tenure at Linton Hall School!
Congratulations to the Linton Hall School Class of 2011! We are so proud of each and every one of you. Our blessings and love follow you as your journey continues to college. Take your love of God, the strength of your gifts, and the confidence of your faith as you embrace the challenges and hopes of your future!
